Habitt launches new products

KARACHI (PR): Habitt, the complete home store, has evolved as one of the favorite Pakistani brands and remains in the lime light by providing one of the best home solutions to the people of Pakistan, and it keeps getting better after every new store that they open. Just like the wedding packages launch of Habitt in the recent past, it was expected that there will be something unique with their new product as compared to others. Recently, Habitt launched its new bed sheets with a special feature that they call “colour-lock technology” which is the result of a special reactive printing process as claimed by their team.

This technology helps preserve the colours of the sheets after washing. If you are fed up of bed sheets that are dull and become even worse after the first wash, you are up for a treat. The bed sheets were visibly brighter and the printing quality was also a class apart as compared to what we have seen anything to-date. They even showed a comparison of how a regular bed sheet in the market looks like after multiple washes and how this new bed sheet range by Habitt stands differentiated with respect to its colour sharpness and brightness.

Bed sheets were very interestingly showcased on the theme of an art gallery, and why not, all their designs looked amazing. Females were especially interested in this unique display of a product they love. More than 20 designs of bed sheets and quilt covers were showcased in Dolmen Mall Clifton where the inspiration of each design was on a display wall which made it even more interesting for the audience.
